One of my favorite quotes for my 3 year old son is “I love you to the moon and back.” It just makes sense since he’s a space enthusiast and wants to be an astronaut when he grows up. So for Valentine’s Day I made this fun Jet Pack for him…and me! I think this would make the perfect prop for a sweet photo shoot.
